Attached in a great How to to get started in creating a podcast and then a vodcast in Garageband. Also explore other Web 2.0 tools like Posterous. Combine this Powerpoint step set with the recorded webinar and you will be on your way to creating a great vodcast.
As you begin to post your examples of vodcasting using Web 2.0 tools in your classrooms or with educators, check out this list of ways to share your audio and video files. Also add to our list.
This is a good list of resources, I would also add to the list blog talk radio. The site provides all tools and resources to create a widely syndicated podcast. The website can be found at http://www.blogtalkradio.com.
Wow...this was a learning experience for all. I wanted my students to learn something new but I also wanted to use a new tool. I used postererous for uploading which is so cool because you can instantly share on social media sites. This is something I picked up in the webinar. They used garage band in the webinar but my district is PC so I showed the students aviary.com to create their own music using the ROC music editor. They loved it. I did too because it is web based so no downloads. Our students are very familiar with movie maker so I decided to have them use the Windows Live version of movie maker which is a little different. The biggest hit though was the flip camera. I gave them the option of creating content with just audio or video but no one wanted to not be seen...LOL. My postererous site is http://sgauthier.posterous.com/ and I have uploaded a cast on reading Harry Potter books created by a couple of 6th graders- I did not edit any of these so these are 100% student products. ENJOY! I will have more Monday but the Valentine's Day social on Friday cut us short on time....you know they all had to get in their cupid shuffle before the weekend!
I just had to share this cast....a couple of 8th graders created a series of them on using the library for new students. I am sharing my favorite one. Just so you will know...postererous has a 100 mb upload limit and this file is 102 and my promise is not to edit so I decided to use another site from Vanessa's list above so you could see another option. I went with DivShare for this one. They used ROC for the music and Movie Maker Live just as my previous post. Once uploaded to DivShare it will start converting it to a DivShare Flash Video so you can watch it on the download page and embed it on your site. Here is the link http://www.divshare.com/download/14048367-857
Note: There are ads unless you upgrade. I will try to use other sites for the ones I upload Monday so you can see the different media share sites. Enjoy!
OK so for those of you who know me well know that I do not like to clean my house so instead I made my own cast to explain the tools we used. I tried to upload with Vimeo (which is on Vanessa's list) but since I am not a premium member it would take almost 3 hrs to convert after the upload..YUK. I opted for YouTube instead. I wanted to use the hound one in the list and if you watch the video then you will know why but it is only for audio. My attempt...

Liked your bookcasts...I had many of them after we started editing this week and then something really cool happened. We had a mock trial today in our pre-law class and they wanted to do some podcasting...oh yeah! I let them use the mp3 easi-speak microphone and they recorded interviews by everyone. I would not let them use audacity since some of them had used it before so I went back to the aviary suite. They used the music and audio editors to create the podcast and this is 100% student edited (I did notice they cut off one word but they were so excited that they never noticed...LOL)- I had no input. This one was fun because it was like the interviews at the end of those Judge Judy shows. Enjoy!
Getting back to those books...I think I am going to create some casts on our summer reading books!
Here is my Vodcast. I used a Canon digital camera and the new itouch for the videos and the photos. As my students were doing their Science Erosion activities I went around and taped them. All the photos and video were imported to iPhoto in my MacBook. Then, I put together the imovie with a group of students. We added sound, transitions, text, and effects to make it more interesting. After that, I had another group of students come and report what was happening in some of the photos. Another child shared with a classmate their findings based on the activity. Finally, I uploaded the imovie to the YouTube Site so we could share it on the Engage Community. This was my first Vodcast and I definitely plan to create more!
Actually Susan, I posted this vodcast on my class website and a couple of my parents sent me some emails. One parent commented that it was great to see Science come alive. Another parent commented that she sat with her child and had a discussion about the vodcast. The parent told me that she was impressed with her child's science knowledge and was appreciative of the technology being used in the classroom.
As for the discussion regarding using a Vodcast with substitutes. I think it can work. The substitute and students can view it and she/he can extend the lesson.
I actually used the vodcast to show one of my students who was absent when we did the erosion activities. He actually thought it was neat to see all the different activities.
OK now I am excited.....my vodacsts were picked to be a part of a Louisiana Library Association presentation to the state legislature members (looking for funding...of course)- they were looking for cool projects going on in the library! Thanks to the webinar team for the encouragement and support to create these. YEAH for vodcasts!
